LSU football landed a commitment from four-star safety Khari Gee on Monday.

LSU football started the week on a high note by landing a commitment from four-star safety Khari Gee.

Gee, 6-foot-3/185 lbs from Atlanta, GA, is rated in 247Sports’ composite rankings as the No. 28 player in the state of Georgia and the No. 18 safety in the nation.

The Georgia native told 247Sports that he committed to LSU because he loves Baton Rouge and he thinks the Tigers can get him to the NFL.

“I like what LSU is doing with their program, and they have a great history sending safeties to the NFL,” said Gee.

The dynamic safety added “That winning culture and how Coach O is approaching these challenges. People are saying and questioning how good the team is going to be in the coming years. I like how Coach O is approaching that challenge…..I love the campus, I love Baton Rouge.”

In late March, Gee told (a Clemson recruiting site) that Clemson was “just different”. Gee said he loved the atmosphere at Clemson and the love that head coach Dabo Swinney shows.

Apparently Clemson wasn’t different enough, because Gee decided to commit to LSU despite not being able to take anymore visits since early March.

That might have something to do with who Gee tries to play like on the field.

In that same interview with TigerNet, Gee was asked who he modeled his game after.

“Probably Jamal Adams. I would say I’m a versatile safety. I can hit hard, and I can cover,” said Gee.

That’s certainly a good player for Gee to emulate. Adams was the No. 6 overall selection in the 2017 NFL Draft. The former LSU star has reached two Pro-Bowls and he was first team All-SEC in 2016.

I don’t know if Gee will be able to live up to what Adams accomplished as a Tiger, but it’s absolutely a good goal for him to have.

Next. Bengals taking smart approach with Joe Burrow. dark

On another note, it’s late May and LSU is still earning victories against Clemson.

I guess we know who the real Tigers are.
